One of the best places to visit in Lisbon for people who listened to Amalia fado. This museum is actually her house where she lived until she died in 1999. It was such a moving visit everything looked left in place. The lady who received...More

Enjoyed learning g about Amalia...her modest roots and the 1950s home she created. My guide was fine. Alas, if you want to learn about Fado itself and nuances of Amalia, look elsewhere.

I never heard of Fado music before my trip to Lisbon- but after visiting Alfama I decided to visit Amalia's house. The lovely lady that showed me around worked and lived with Amalia for 40+ years and had great stories about her.
